Re: c.v clicking

When was the last time your axle fluids were changed? Do you know if you have the friction modifier in there (if required).

If the fluid is old and/or there is not the correct amount of friction modifier I could see this presenting a problem in the cold.

The one time I had a dealership do my diff service, they forgot to add the friction modifier and when really cold you could hear the differential chatter. When I put the modifier in, it went away.

Re: c.v clicking

Sounds like the same thing that has happened to me the past few days. Goes away after a couple miles. Can't figure it out for he life of me. Sounds like the tire rubbing on fender liner but I know that's not the problem. Then I wondered if something was frozen in the exhaust because i was hearing it when I accelerate and it goes away when the jeep is warmed up. I am baffled too.
